Does your family or organization want to donate to or volunteer for a charity this holiday season, but you don't know where to start? Thanksgiving is when we typically reflect on what we are thankful for and how we can give back to others. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, this year it is more important than ever to help where you can. There are many ways you can dedicate both your time and money to individuals in need this holiday season, whether in-person, virtually, or by phone.
As you know, Bill Otto’s Oldies Attic Turkeython has been raising money for families in all of Indiana County for over 30 years. Through this annual Turkeython event, Bill recommends distribution of funds for meals, food boxes/or certificates for food and other essential items to local organizations to enable individuals and families in need to celebrate the holidays. The holidays are when most families are trying to provide food, gifts, and a joyous time for their families and children. Often times, there is also the ongoing struggle with trying to provide for your family, and pay monthly bills. Donations such as yours are distributed to organizations like the Salvation Army of Indiana County, Homeless Veterans, Chevy Chase Community Center, Blairsville and Homer City Food Pantries and many others.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED THIS TURKEYTHON:
Your contribution is a way of not only feeding those those who face food insecurity, but also to show kindness and support to those who are feeling the pain of poverty and misfortune. Won't you please help make it possible for this annual charitable tradition to continue? The United Way relies on generous donations from caring people like you to provide this important service to the residents of our community. Thank you for being an example of what it means to be #communitystrong.
Every donation made through the Turkeython will go towards purchasing turkeys, food, toiletries, clothing, and other essential items for veterans and families in need throughout Indiana County, as well as supporting our general fund. We also supply turkeys to local organizations so that they can provide a hot cooked holiday meal for those in need. It is our goal that no one go through the holiday season feeling that they are unable to have a meal or their basic needs met. Your money stays here in our community to help our neighbors who need it the most.
